A Day In the Life of a Business Girl

E.O. Hoppé took some beautiful photos in Sydney. Actually he took beautiful photos all around Australia.

I particularly love this A Day In the Life of a Business Girl series.

Slice of life street photography.

After publishing his 1921 Book of Fair Women he was considered a bit of an expert on women and was even asked to judge beauty contests in America.

To a Cairns Post journalist he commented… I cannot understand why Australian girls with beautiful bronzed skins should use white powder, pluck their eye-brows, and otherwise endeavour to make themselves standardised.

Here are a couple of beauties from his lovely ladies book.
